    And he said his ratings were up 50% since this all started.

    I suppose Jay's are up too.

    It actually worked out well for Conan they could have forced him to break the contract by simply moving the Tonight Show to a later time since I don't believe the original contract said the show must be on at 11:30pm. Though NBC would have then not been able to keep the Tonight Show name and decades long reputation since they would have killed the show completely by putting "The Tonight Show" on the next day after midnight and on an hour where little people watch TV.
    Well, actually, those sweetheart bonuses that CEO big-dicks get are in their contracts.

    If NBC wasn't a part of the state media, PBO might scold them for this payoff.

    Somebody, somewhere, will claim it was all planned as a publicity stunt.

    Unless the Government had a large percentage of shares in the company I highly doubt it.

    It's interesting that you believe shareholders should have no say in how a company operates.

    I didn't say that. Care to address any other comments I didn't make?

    It's lame that Jay Leno retired and there was all this media buzz around it, and now he's just going to come back. That's show bizz for you.

    I don't find O'Brien funny but gotta give him credit for being a Canadian that made it into the American spotlight. Not any easy thing to do.

    He's not Canadian, though. He's from the Boston area.
